Rev. Roberts greeted people at the Sacred Witness Rally and pledged that things would change
and that Fairmont UMC would welcome all.
Fairmont always has been involved in outreach. We’ve had mission teams Down East and as far as Haiti. We also make a special effort to bring people of all kinds into our church and to welcome them with open hearts and minds. Which is why in 2016 we affiliated with the Reconciling Ministries Network, a national organization that promotes acceptance of LGBT people and people of color into the United Methodist Church.We will not judge you because of your background, how you dress, what clubs you belong to, or how much money you have. You’re always welcome at Fairmont.
We celebrate God’s gift of diversity and value the wholeness made possible in community equally shared and shepherded by all. We welcome and affirm people of every gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, who are also of every age, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, level of education, and family structure, and of every economic, immigration, marital, and social status, and so much more. We acknowledge that we live in a world of profound social, economic, and political inequities. As followers of Jesus, we commit ourselves to the pursuit of justice and pledge to stand in solidarity with all who are marginalized and oppressed.
